|New Living Translation (NLT)
||New International Version (NIV)
9 The Levites obeyed your word and guarded your covenant. They were more loyal to you than to their parents, relatives, and children.
9 He said of his father and mother, 'I have no regard for them.' He did not recognize his brothers or acknowledge his own children, but he watched over your word and guarded your covenant.
